The majestic relic of the planet's last glaciating
Sailing every Monday and Friday from Puerto Chacabuco, a small town located about 1600 km. south of Santiago, for the San Rafael Glacier, the majestic relic of the planet's last glaciating, Skorpios carries you on a Dream Cruise of four days (with the alternative of an additional day in Quitralco for the cruises that sail on Monday). It goes through spectacular channels and archipelagos where an exuberant nature can be seen in its entire splendour and where man's activities are nearly imperceptible. You will see islands with unbroken coastlines scattered in the wide seas of this new route to the San Rafael Lagoon. Here you will be welcomed by the Glacier, towering more than seventy meters above you, and sail in safe boats among the spectacular multicolored icebergs whose ice is more than 30,000 years old. On the return trip, the Quitralco fjord and its thermal baths will be waiting for us.
